Our Brighton Marina Fair Trade Shop has moved

For our regular visitors:
we are just two minutes away from our old shop - take the stairs, our new shop is directly
opposite Memories of India Restaurant.
Up your end a bit, Jim…
So many thanks to the dozen or so friends who all turned up on the day to help us move
on Monday 7 July 2017. It was much appreciated. So big thanks to Brian & Arthur, Joani, Julia & Julia, Lillo, Lily, Mitzi, Suze, Tamsin, Tone.
New website, new shop
This new website offers many of lovethatstuff’s most popular items but our Brighton Marina shop stocks the full lovethatstuff range plus more from several other fair trade buyers.

Over 30 producer groups in 27 countries are represented, supporting: HIV/AIDS orphans; deaf children; disabled producers; indigenous South Americans; street children; Tibetan refugee children in India; widows; and victims of human trafficking, landmines and torture.

Many of the producer groups particularly focus on supporting women, some employing over 95%.

Hand loomed scarves

If it's a scarf you want, we have an amazing range - silk, wool, cotton, viscose and cashmilon. Almost all the cotton scarves are handloomed. They're colour coordinated in the shop so you can decide quickly from your favourite colours. Then they come in a variety of thicknesses so big and snuggly, medium or sheer for evening wear.

Inset: These lovely scarves are made of fine muslin and hand embroidered in matching colour embroidery. Embroidered by a women's group in India.
